I’ve been in Rome for the weekend. I missed Brian, Andrew Macdonald and me on the Cinema Show on BBCFour – maybe Vinnie can do some screen grabs… though I will hopefully see it soon. I’m glad they used the lesbian dominatrix line… though I’ll probably be called a gay-basher for that now, too :-/. I mean, a 1950s sci-fi movie, the alien woman in question is wearing some micro-mini dress and a cape made out of PVC, androgynous haircut, Bowie-eque make-up… I say she looked like a lesbian dominatrix (which in the 50s was as good as being from another planet) and I bet you there will be someone out there who will claim that I am making assumptions based on stereotypes and what someone wears doesn’t make them a lesbian OR a dominatrix for that matter and how dare I say that if I’m trying to have a career in the media and question my understanding of irony and blahblahblah
Oh, I don’t really have the energy for it. Get over yourselves.
I’m going to bed. To get some rest. To hopefully go see the Divine David tomorrow night.
**edit** The Cinema Show is repeated tomorrow night at midnight on Beeb4…**
